What to See at Pura Geger Temple

Geger’s temple gates are usually locked. They're open on major ceremonies when priests and pilgrims are present at the temple. You can easily visit the temple’s outer grounds, though. See its impressive outer features from up-close. Peer through its gates for a glimpse of the shrines and inner courtyards. A particular shrine in its eastern corner is devoted to a deity, Ida Batara Dalem Pamutih. This is why southern Nusa Dua villagers refer to the temple by its longer designation: Pura Geger Dalem Pamutih. Another is for the deity of the seas.

South of the temple walls, you can find a narrow pathway that leads you down to a hidden stretch of sand. Rocky cliffs border this area, forming the base of the temple. It’s best to visit this section of the beach during low tide. Around a hundred metres from here is a special shrine in between the limestone crevices. This guards a source of holy water for the temple. It's where pilgrims also carry out blessings and purification rituals. Around a hundred metres west of the temple complex is one of Nusa Dua’s longstanding standalone restaurants. Nusa Dua Beach Grill serves varied seafood selections, with occasional live music.
